R.I.P. Noel Neill

I don't know if I'd call it an early crush as much as just a strong, almost maternal, feeling from Noel Neill, the original and most well-known live action Lois Lane. After a modeling career and some B movies, she first turned up as the crusading reporter in Kirk Alyn's Superman serials. At first replaced in the George Reeves TV version, she returned to the role and won the hearts of youngsters and their future selves everywhere. She passed yesterday.
